Gmod dedi server help

ok, http://wiki.garrysmod.com/?title=Windows_Dedicated_Server_Setup

Followed everything to the key i am quite sure, but i look for the IP of the server it said i created and nothing, non existent. Is there more to the puzzle? or did I not do it right. I stopped right before crash recovery, as it says the server should be running and i do not see it.

I am a complete idiot when it comes to this stuff obviously, i never ran a server in my life. I learn quickly so help would diffidently get me on the right track.

Thanks

hello?

Are you trying to run the server from your computer?
Are you sure you port forwarded correctly?

Try http://www.whatismyip.com that should be your IP.
